Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)

IV.T.06. Armament Decision Aids. In FY97, investigate armament decision aids using techniques may include rule-based reasoning, fuzzy logic, artificial neural nets, or a combination of the three, and interface requirements for fire support elements in a maneuver environment. In FY98, conduct object oriented analysis of advanced reasoning and AI techniques implemented in a set of software components for use by fire support elements capable of operating with a maneuver force. In FY99, integrate software components with existing platform vetronics. The components will be designed with the ability to be configured in a distributed (inter-netted) as well as an embedded environment. In FY00, demonstrate software components, reason on digital terrain data with a 50 percent reduction in time required to respond, and fire while operating with a maneuver force as compared to current methods.
